The novel follows the story of Harriet Wilmot and her family who go to live in a house in the NSW town of Barley Creek at the end of the nineteenth-century. They had previously lived in London and had inherited the house from a relative.
Harriot is very accepting of the new country though the rest of her family struggles with the heat and isolation. The book is a coming of age story, not just for Harriet but for her brother Aidan and for the rest of the family as well.
